Settling into my three week residency having set up my work space. They have lent me a huge 20' X 30' studio with fantastic light. My bedroom and bath are in the same building along with a kitchen I can use. I'm in a brand new building so everything is elegant and clean and well heated. Who can ask for more? A good group of cohorts , a mix of writers and visual artists. Dinner is held communally in the dining hall of the mansion…wood paneled walls, heavy mahogony chairs, it's all very high victoriana.
